Getting VITAMINS isn’t hard?!

 

I will admit I am a vitamin guy.  Now, I am not referring to pills and multivitamins necessarily, although sometimes these can help if they are good quality. Try to avoid cheap, synthetic vitamins.   I am a big fan of getting vitamins from foods and some supplements made from whole-foods.  Vitamins are essential if you want to optimize your health and life so let’s look a little bit about where we can get these.

C-  Possibly the most important basic vitamin.  In most fruits; but especially high in citrus like grapefruit.  A great way to get a lot of vitamin C is to squeeze some fresh grapefruit or lemons into some water and drink it.  MOST FRESH FRUITS have good amounts of this; but you will have to research a bit as to which have the most.  Grapefruit is my favorite with about 200% vitamin C daily in ONE GRAPEFRUIT!

B VITAMINS – IN MANY fruits, but may be especially high in good quality berries.  These are important for stress and energy production.

E –  In many fresh nuts and seed kernels.  Good for hair, skin, teeth, nails, etc.

D – Sun exposure, fish oil, calcium, etc.

The point here is that if you are eating high quality food, you will be getting your vitamins.  If not; you can always consider a high-quality whole foods multivitamin supplement. If you are missing these elements it will be very hard to be healthy and your brain and mental chemistry, as well as immune systems won’t be working optimally either.  It’s an easy fix!
